Ideal for use with any introductory physics text, Loyd's PHYSICS LABORATORY MANUAL is suitable for either calculus- or algebra/trigonometry-based physics courses. Designed to help students develop their intuitive abilities in physics, the third edition has been updated to take advantage of modern equipment realities and to incorporate the latest in physics education research. In each lab, author David Loyd emphasizes conceptual understanding and includes a thorough discussion of physical theory to help students see the connection between the lab and the lecture. Each lab includes a set of pre-lab exercises, and many labs give students hands-on experience with statistical analysis. Equipment requirements are kept at a minimum to allow for maximum flexibility and to make the most of pre-existing lab equipment. For instructors interested in using some of Loyd's experiments, a customized lab manual is another option available through the Cengage Learning Custom Solutions program. Now, you can select specific experiments from Loyd's PHYSICS LABORATORY MANUAL, include your own original lab experiments, and create one affordable bound book.
